I was looking for a way to make my own onion dip, without using packaged onion soup mix (way too many preservatives). After searching various recipes, I adapted them to my own liking. In the end I decided to roast garlic and caramelize onion. There is about 45 minutes of prep work, but it's mostly waiting for the garlic to roast in the oven, and for the onions to slowly caramelize over the stove. In the end, the result was worth it. It's a bit decadent, with calories, but once in a while-- dip in!


1 large sweet onion (like Vidalia)
1 head of garlic
olive oil
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
cups sour cream
¾ cup mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 tsp fresh lemon juice (optional)
Instead of the dried spices, use 2-3 tsp of Susie-Q Santa Maria Style seasoning.
